Auvergne in ancient France was the home of the first family to use the name Bouzic which was a name for someone who lived near a thicket of bushes, as the name was derived from the Old French word buisson, which means thicket or bushes.

Bouzic Spelling Variations



Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Bouzic, including Buisson, Buison, Buizon, Buysson, Bhuisson, Dubuisson, Bouisson, Bouissou, Buissonnet, Buissonnière, Buisset, Buissard, Boysson, Boisson, Le Buisson and many more.

The Great Migration



In the 1700s, land incentives were finally given out by France to 2,000 migrants. Early marriage was encouraged in New France, and youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted migrants, both noble and commoner from France. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries, leaving French names scattered across the continent. The search for the Northwest passage continued. Migration from France to New France or Quebec, as it was now more popularly called, continued until 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebe c. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, Acadia were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Bouzic were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Bouzic were Louis Buisson settled in Louisiana in 1752; and François-Joseph Buisson who married Marguerite Houde in Laneuville in Québec on April 28; 1715.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Semper virens
Motto Translation: Always flourishing.
